Before the Marx Brothers, there was “Hershele”, a beloved folk hero and compassionate jester who battles injustice armed only with his wits. In this comic tale full of song, Hershele mobilizes a community to overcome the greedy desires of a villain who stands in the way of young love. The lively music and “meshugene” antics will inspire gales of laughter, set toes tapping and make for a truly memorable evening at the theater.
